Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Orlando Cabrera gave the Montreal Expos one of the few key hits they have had this season. Cabrera's single with two outs in the top of the ninth inning scored Endy Chavez with the go-ahead run, lifting the Expos to a 4-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Diamondbacks manager Bob Brenly went to closer Jose Valverde (0-1) to start the ninth in a tie game. Valverde retired the first two batters before running into trouble. Endy Chavez doubled to deep left field and, after an intentional walk to Jose Vidro, Cabrera came through by lining a 3-2 pitch into left field, giving the Expos the lead. "It was a great challenge when they walked Vidro," Cabrera said. "That is what I live for. I like that kind of challenge. I fouled off good pitches and when he got to 3-2, I knew he had to throw a fastball and I hit it good." "Orlando got a clutch hit," Expos manager Frank Robinson said. "We have been missing those on a regular basis. We have been unable to get that big hit." Brenly had thoughts of pitching to Cabrera. "That was a really good at-bat Cabrera but it was a tough decision to me," Brenly said. "Jose Vidro has been doing it a long time. He has had a lot of real tough at-bats and come through with a lot of big hits so we decided to walk him and go with the righty on righty matchup." Getting big hits is something that the Expos have not been accustomed to this season. They have scored a major league-low 92 runs and been blanked six times in 36 games. Brian Schneider hit a two-run homer in the second for the Expos, who snapped a four-game losing streak. Chad Cordero (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the win and Rocky Biddle worked around a leadoff walk in the ninth for his eighth save. Diamondbacks outfielder Steve Finley hit his major league-leading 12th homer, a solo shot in the sixth that tied the game at 3-3. It also was Finley 1,000th career RBI and 75th homer at Bank One Ballpark, tying him with teammate Luis Gonzalez for the most in the history of the stadium. "It really doesn't mean a whole lot when you lose the game," Finley said. "It is a nice milestone and something I will enjoy later on." Diamondbacks starter Casey Fossum, activated from the disabled list earlier in the day, gave up three runs and five hits in five innings in his Arizona debut. Fossum, who was acquired in an offseason trade that sent Curt Schilling to Boston, had been sidelined with a left shoulder strain. "I got off to a really good start but kind of lost the feel for my breaking ball in the middle innings," said Fossum, who threw 86 pitches. "I battled and kept the game close. It is good to get the first one out of the way and my arm felt great." The Diamondbacks broke on top in the first. Shea Hillenbrand lofted a sacrifice fly and Danny Bautista delivered a run-scoring single. But Expos starter Tomo Ohka settled down and allowed three runs and six hits in seven innings. "He started off a little shaky, like he wasn't into it, but by about the third inning he started throwing the ball much better and was getting ahead of hitters," Robinson said. Schneider's fourth homer with two outs in the second tied the game and Brad Wilkerson's RBI single in the third gave the Expos a 3-2 lead. The offense had be a surprise for Ohka, who had received just four runs in his first six starts.
